Professional interest of the Russian bridge builders, 29.07.2011

Engineers from “TransKapStroi” and the “Designers Institute” – Moscow got acquainted with the construction of Danube Bridge Vidin-Calafat.

Eng. Alberto Vergara, Project Manager “Danube Bridge Vidin-Calafat”, on the part of the Contractor FCC Construccion and eng. Steven Pollard, Chief Engineer of “Ingerop/High-Point Rendel” on the part of the Supervision of the bridge construction, presented basic data about the construction of the trans-border installation. With particular interest the engineers got acquainted with the technology of constructing the superstructure of the bridge in the non-navigable channel and the navigable channel of the river and with the production yard of the company where the reinforcement is prepared and all segments for the bridge are pre-cast.

The practice of the Russian engineers is to visit the largest infrastructural sites in the world. Their work now is focused on building a bridge in Moscow, after they have built three bridges in Turkey and before the start of the construction of a bypass in St. Petersburg.
